The Ames Company makes every effort to keep Uncle Cedric away from any decisions or work. This is in the best interests for him and the company. Trouble starts when he hires a schemer named Joe as his personal assistant and then a gal named Minnie who loves fashion. He buys Minnie a dress shop where Colleen is the bookkeeper and scandal soon follows. When Donald goes to shut down the shop, he doesn't as he is infatuated by Colleen. Colleen runs the shop and fashion shows and starts to make a profit, but Minnie starts a scandal when Cedric tries to adopt her, but doesn't - much to the horror of Alicia and the amusement of the press. Then Joe sues Donald for the loss of Colleen's affection. Written by

It's a funny thing, Joe, how you always manage to drop in just when we're startin' to eat.
Thanks, pop. I'll have a cup of coffee with you. Might go for a block of wheatcakes, too.
Sorry, Joe, I didn't have time to make wheatcakes this morning.
Oh, that's all right. I'll eat anything you got.
And that's no idle boast.
